Simon Says… 0118

With the London and Düsseldorf boat shows now behind us, I took away with me two principal thoughts...

Prepare your boat for Spring

With Spring just around the corner, it’s time to check your deck hardware for signs of wear and tear, especially mast sheaves and blocks before you re-step.

THE BENEFITS OF USING KICKER BLOCKS AND BOOMSTRUTS

Sail control is an important factor in ensuring you get the best performance and enjoyment from your yacht. The amount of control required varies according to your type of sailing, whether you are cruising or racing.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SEAWORK!

Seawork is a great chance for Barton to show off our strong offering for the commercial marine and industrial sectors. Many people associate Barton Marine almost entirely with leisure marine products, but this is not the case! 

LAST LYNE - MAY 2017

As the sailing season starts to get into full swing, we’re hoping for much better weather than we experienced at the Marine Industry Regatta in The Solent!  

DISTRIBUTOR OF THE MONTH - MAY 2017

There are only a few companies that have represented Barton products since the early 1980’s – and we are delighted that YC Nautica has been such an important distributor for more than three decades!

We hope the maintenance tips provided in this Newsline give you a good starting point for getting your boat is ready for sailing.
